From antelope to zebra, there’s plenty exotic to hunt in Texas. But if it’s plenty of sport and giggles you’re after, hog and varmint are prizes worth pursuing.
Just a few hours east of the infamous urban hub of Dallas, the ranch boasts a rifle range, skeet lay out and of course a classic Texan rustic lodge overlooking 110acre lake. Designed to accommodate parties of eight in four twin rooms, the lodge has a social layout perfect for convening of an evening to share tall tales of hunting success and reminisce over the day’s events.
All year round.
